It appears, with only open office and norton 2003 I only have 12% available space. Is this usual and if not, what can I do about it to increase it.

I am a real novice. Is it easy to install a new hard drive ?

The limiting factor for fiting a new bigger drive could be the age of the PC and wether the BIOS will recognise your new drive (have an old PC that will not see drives over 20G)

How old is your PC, make and model, BIOS version?

Dead easy to fit a hard drive, 4 screws, 2 cables, one jumper.

I have little cash but it seems may be better and less hassle to buy another one, possibly 2nd hand ? This is old and came to me from a local authority.
